Mayor Pete celebrated the death of an unborn baby Sunday with abortion activists in Nevada.
Buttigieg, the former South Bend, Indiana mayor and Democrat presidential candidate, met privately with supporters of the abortion chain Planned Parenthood near Los Vegas, Breitbart reports.
During the event, Buttigieg praised a woman for sharing her abortion story with him. The woman reportedly told him that she had an abortion in college, and, afterward, she struggled with feeling criticized and ridiculed for her abortion choice, according to reporters who attended the event.
Buttigieg thanked the woman for telling her abortion story, calling it “a reminder of how we are all lifted up when we honor individual freedom and support,” the report states. He also promised to force taxpayers to fund abortions if elected president.
Make no mistake, what Buttigieg and Planned Parenthood actually celebrated on Sunday was the death of an unborn child, not a right or a freedom, and a struggling young mother who should have been told the truth that she was carrying a child — not a blob of tissue or product of conception, but a living human being who probably already had a heartbeat and certainly already had his/her own unique DNA.
There is nothing uplifting about destroying a child’s life, nor is there anything freeing about it. Unborn babies deserve a right to life and their mothers deserve to know the truth about pregnancy and abortion.
If elected president, however, Buttigieg has signaled that his allegiance would be to the billion-dollar abortion industry, not women or voters. He supports a radical pro-abortion platform that calls for legalized abortions for any reason up to birth and taxpayer-funded abortions, both of which Americans strongly oppose.
In May, he described the killing of unborn babies as “an American freedom,” the AP reports.
He said the government should not restrict abortions in any way, and instead leave the decision to abort an unborn baby completely up to women, according to One News Now.
“I think the dialogue has gotten so caught up on where you draw the line that we’ve gotten away from the fundamental question of who gets to draw the line,” Buttigieg said when asked about a new Alabama law that bans all abortions. “And I trust women to draw the line.”
Then earlier this month, he defended abortions up to birth and infanticide, saying that “it should be up to the woman” to decide whether or not to kill her baby in an abortion. Buttigieg, in an appearance on ABC’s The View, again refused to back any limit whatsoever on abortion – even partial-birth abortion – or to support protections for babies born alive in botched abortions.
